1. Mission Treat The Bold Italic is throwing a microhood party down on Shotwell and 24th Street, what looks to be a dreadfully good time. Art and fashion as well as of course food and drink will be on offer, including Local Mission Eatery ($3 craft beers, oysters with apple gelle and pate with mustard and greens—yum) and La Victoria Bakery's Soul Cocina Kitchen, a pop-up headed by chef Roger Feeley. Thursday, October 28, 7 to 9 pm
Lord, I love a good midweek party -- and I especially adore discovering a new nightspot.
The relatively new Bold Italic site -- a Yelp-ish online entity dedicated to insider tips -- complied with an event at Le Club. I’d never been to the Nob Hill venue -- once a private club and now helmed by the owner of Bambuddha Lounge -- but my, oh, my, it was a deco revelation. The vibe was ‘20s-era speakeasy with chandeliers, plenty of cozy corners and a hideaway pool room. I felt like I had been spirited away to a posh lounge overseen by my coquettish, ex-Ziegfeld showgirl grandma.
